It’s all about the T’s: tide, time and temperature, and of the three the most important is the time. Although tide, or current, and temperature are factors, time deserves the most consideration. This time of year you can pretty much set your watch by the Bass bite. From the time the sun rises, until 10:30 a.m., the bass bite is outstanding.

The water is perfect and the fish are hungry, so load up and go get em. This Cedar Key fishing report is from Cedar Key Marina and Cedar […]
